"Why do I read Site Selection?"
"During Stion's search process that led to its facility announcement in Hattiesburg, Miss., Site Selection was a useful informational tool which complemented our data-gathering and decision-making efforts. The team has a great deal of experience in identifying siting decisions which have a compelling economic development angle, and objectively highlighting the business context. For an emerging company that has limited internal resources and time, Site Selection is a great aid in funneling the vast amount of information involved in such a multi-faceted process."
- Frank Yang
senior director of business development for thin-film solar panel manufacturer Stion Corp.
